Applying Colors

InDesign works similarly to QuarkXPress when it comes to applying colors: Select one or more frames, and then select whether you want to change the fill or the stroke attributes. These choices are found in three places: on the bottom of the Tools palette, and on the upper left corner of the Swatches and Color palettes. You can also toggle between these two options by typing the letter X.

You can then click a swatch on the Swatches palette or choose a color from the Color palette. You can also apply colors by dragging a color swatch from these palettes onto the fill or stroke of a frame, even if the frame is not the selected object. If you pick the wrong attribute—fill instead of stroke, or vice versa—Shift-X swaps the fill and stroke colors.
